Des Moines gas station move halted


DES MOINES (KWWL)-- While moving a gas station in Des Moines, movers noticed the gas station's chimney got stuck. 

It happened Wednesday afternoon.  Workers were moving the historic Continental Oil gas station from its longtime site in East Village to 19th street.  


The station was too tall to fit under the 8th Street viaduct at Martin Luther King Jr. Partway. The move had to be halted while workers cut off enough of the chimney to gain leeway.
